Rooting the hallway

The connecter hallway is designed to combine all five senses as yous take through your journey into Middle School. There are many tactile surfaces and open areas to connect all community spaces into the hallway. This hallway is the main station for displaying whats going on within the school. Each surface is marked off into sections such as activities, clubs, or achievements. This helps each student begin to feel welcome as he continues his journey and have a basic understanding of whats going on within the school. School spirit es once again established here. I view this hallway as another ring in the tree trunk. It shows the schools growth and is the foundation to stitching the school with the grade level hallways which are the branches of the school. Once again you can also see how lighting is important in the space by the green colored flooring which makes you aware that natural lighting is taking place there. Also, as a thin thread stitching all the tactile surfaces together on the walls, you can view a small accent of color under the top right material. It forms a straight line that even continues through the classroom doors. It has small recessed lighting built into in to create a stronger emphasis on the schools work below it. Finally, you can view the purple band still acting as the feeder root through the school as it carries the knowledge and nutrients into the classrooms.
